A candy station for a children’s party is always a big hit! What’s more fun than loading up a bag full of candy?
Next, I loaded up the jars and glasses with Halloween candy!
Please make sure you check for peanut allergies before you put together your station! If you have a child with a nut allergy make sure your candy is nut free!!!!!
I’m trying not to nibble on the candy myself!!! 😉 I found these black measuring scoops at the dollar store. Perfect for the kids to scoop up the candy!
I made two pumpkin banners using dollar store sponge pumpkins and ribbon! So simple and inexpensive.
I made eye-ball cake pops also! These are the ingredients needed.
I used instant cake mix and canned icing. Yes, I “cheated”! LOL
One of the moms made these sweet cupcakes with her son!!!! So cute and thoughtful!
The mummy dogs were fast and easy! The wieners (I like the ones without preservatives best) are wrapped with Pillsbury pizza dough and placed in the oven at 300 until the dough is cooked. So EASY!
Yellow mustard is used for the eyes. The kids ate them up!
During the party, I told a ghost story about our house built in 1859!!!! The kids really got into it. I gave them a ghost tour of our home and some of them said “they could feel cold spots” during the tour. At one point a few boys hid and popped out and scared the group. Too funny!
Next, my husband (who worked diligently for hours and hours) built a trebuchet! The idea was to catapult pumpkins!
Well……unfortunately his design needs some work. The pumpkins didn’t really fly far BUT, I give him an A plus for effort!
He has a year to perfect the trebuchet! Next year we will see some pumpkins fly!!!! 😉
It was educational to say the least!
Have a great day!! Thank you for visiting me today!!!!
